454hoho, do you have any pictures you can post? Good luck racing next year.

Hey 454.....
Where did you get it? From who? Is it an ex-race boat? This is mine, 30'.
:) :) :)

I thought i had seen your boat listed at boat nice setup. ?What power was in it?

Body shot I had asked Randy/Typhoon F-2 if he know you I remember you had a deal going to buy a sutphen. Velocity good boat. what class are you going to race. I am not sure if i will have my boat all together by spring. very busy and lots of work to do.

KN I have lots of pics just dont have the time or knowledge to post them, also not rigged yet ext. boxes,drive, motors etc sitting in garage:( :D

It has small blocks with TRS, they are about 500hp each. We may convert it if I have the time, maybe throw it in a few races???? We were going to race again this year and built monsters, 407 Small Block Chevy, 640+ Horsepower, 540 Ft. Lbs.Torque, need motors? Are you going to run BB or SB motors? Was/is it set up for race? Where did you get it?

We'll either go P3 or P4..not sure how fast it's going to be yet..hoping to be done in March, so we can start running it in April to figure things out..

Your's looks like a pleasure version of the 30, right?...mid-late 1980's??..very nice boat!

spyguy's boat was the race-30 I mentioned earlier..great boat..

See you at Smittys!

It is a spirit 30.7, 1990. The boat isn`t setup for race but then it has not been much of a pleasure either. I should be done some time around Feb. --------------------------------------2006. lots of work to be done on extension box setup etc..:rolleyes: :D

"Not much of a pleasure either" Hummmm Late 89-90 Sutphen organization fell apart for a while and lost all key personnel.

454hoho 11-26-2002 06:22 PM

I need to clear up something. The boat is not the problem. It was the p---ss poor maint. of the previous owner (neglect & poor maint) His tool box consisted of 1.pipe wrench 2. visegrips 3.butter knife/screwdrive. as for the boat sutphens are solid and well made boats. :D :D and fast :D

BODYSHOT1 12-02-2002 06:20 PM


you must've done some work on it, cuz she sure looks great now!

white & red 30'
Thanks for clearing that up. Got a boat that was also maintained by your guy with a pipe wrenchso I know exactly what you mean. Sutphen did under go a change and I am glad that his product did not suffer. We used to take pride in making them.
